Canon adds retrofit detector

Article

Canon Medical Systems added a retrofit bucky sensor system to its digital radiography efforts at the 1999 RSNA meeting. Called CXDI-22, the amorphous silicon-based unit is suitable for both wall-stand and table radiography systems, according to Canon.

Canon Medical Systems added a retrofit bucky sensor system to its digital radiography efforts at the 1999 RSNA meeting. Called CXDI-22, the amorphous silicon-based unit is suitable for both wall-stand and table radiography systems, according to Canon.

CXDI-22 features a 17 x 17-inch imaging area, and a 2.9-inch-thick sensor plate that does not require replacement of existing bucky table systems. Upright and tabletop radiographic positions can be recorded with CXDI-22, according to Canon.

With CXDI-22, preview images are displayed within a few seconds after exposure on the operation/preview panel, a 10.5-inch touch-sensitive LCD panel. Up to 300 raw images can be stored in the control station, and stored images can be disseminated to a PACS network for soft-copy reading, archiving, and/or printing. CXDI-22 is DICOM 3.0 storage- and print class-compliant, according to the Irvine, CA-based firm.

A bucky sensor unit with removable grid, operation/preview unit, and control station will cost approximately $250,000.
